Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue, who is also head of the National Steering Committee on Price Management, has recently issued instructions to authorities to cope with rising pork prices.

He has asked the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) to work with the Ministries of Finance, and Industry and Trade as well as the General Statistics Office (GSO) to evaluate pork demand and supply until the end of 2019.

They have been urged to outline measures to stabilise pork prices, especially during festivals and the Lunar New Year 2020, including imports to ensure sufficient supply.

The GSO will work with relevant agencies to assess the impact of pork prices on the consumer price index (CPI), and curb the index in line with the target set by the National Assembly and the Government.

Deputy PM Hue assigned the MARD and GSO to submit reports to him before October 21./.
